Glencar/Manorhamilton GAA Club Notes 20/03/2019

New Arrival – Many congrats to James and Joanne Gilmartin on the recent arrival of their baby boy, Daniel.

Hurling – Well done to our Senior hurlers who had a 1-18 to 4-6 win over Tourlestrane in the Dermot Molloy Hurling League on St Patrick’s Day.

Underage – Our U13 team played two home games against Dromahair in Division 1 and St Brigids in Division 2A over the Bank Holiday weekend.  They had mixed fortunes with the Division 1 side winning and the Division 2A side coming up short against St Brigids.  The U17’s fixture versus St Joseph’s was called off.  All fixture details relating to our U13 and U17 teams will be posted on our Facebook Page.  Please show your support.

Gaelic4Girls – This programme continues for another 6 weeks every Monday 7pm to 8pm at St Clare’s National School.  It is fantastic to see so many enthusiastic girls enjoying themselves while learning the skills of Gaelic football.  It is open to girls aged 8-12yrs who are not part of a Ladies Gaelic Football Club and who are interested in learning the skills of the game. All girls in this age group from the area are encouraged to attend. They will be taught the basic skills of Gaelic football on a fun basis and will get to demonstrate their new skills at a fun mini-blitz. All girls will be presented with a Gaelic4Girls Jersey and certificate. A major bonus from the programme is that all participants will get the chance to participate in a Mini Blitz with another Gaelic4Girls site. The cost for the entire programme is only €10. Anybody who would like more details on this programme is asked to contact Bernie McMorrow on 086 1234634.

Leitrim – Hard luck to Leitrim who were defeated by Derry in Celtic Park at the weekend in what was a dress rehearsal for the Allianz League Final to take place in Croke Park on Saturday 30th March.  Good Luck to the team who play Waterford at home this Saturday at 4pm.

Leitrim Supporters Club – Leitrim Supporters tickets are now on sale from the Club for €50 and can be acquired by contacting Phil Flynn.

St Patrick’s Day – It was great to see a large crowd in attendance for the Manorhamilton St Patrick’s Day Parade on Sunday evening.  Full credit to those who organised and all who took part to make it a most enjoyable occasion for all ages.
